Transcript JERUSALEM. 43 the south-west had passages to the Temple cloisters, by which the Temple guard went to its post, for, as Josephus adds, " the Temple was a fortress that guarded the city, as was the Tower of Antonia a guard to the Temple, and in that tower were the guards of those three." At the present day a pile of masonry in the street which runs westward along the north end of the Haram esh Sherif from St. Stephen's Gate is known as the " Tower of Antonia " (see page 30). This so- called tower appears to be part of an old mosque or church; it has attached to it a small court, in which several Moslem celebrities are buried; and the place is known to the native population of Jerusalem as the mosque and cemetery of those who fought against the Infidel, or, as we might call them, Knights of the Crescent. It was near this place that the distinguished French savant, M. Ganneau, was fortunate enough to find one of the tablets of Herod's Temple, which, as Josephus tells us, forbade strangers to enter the sacred enclosure. The tablet bears an inscription in Greek to the following effect: " No stranger is to enter within the balustrade round the Temple and enclosure. Whoever is caught will be responsible to himself for his death, which will ensue." The inscription throws light on the events described in Acts xxi. 26 et seq., during which Paul nearly lost his life. The Jews of Asia supposed that Paul had brought Trophimus, an Ephesian, into the Temple, and thus polluted the Holy Place. A tumult THE WAILING-PLACE OF THE JEWS. The west wall of the Haram. or Sacred Enclosure. On Fridays, after four o'clock, Jews and Jewesses assemble here for prayer, and bewail the downfall of Jerusalem.
